How do Quoddy Boat Shoes and Bluchers fit? true to size? Or would you recommending going down 1/2 to account for stretching? I figure if I'm a 10US in Clarks Desert Boots (which is a 1/2 size down from my true size), I should go for a 10US in the Quoddy's too... Any thoughts? Well I wear a 12 in most, including sperrys, and my size 12 quoddy bluchers fit fantastic. I am sure that it will stretch out a little bit, but I don't think sizing down is necessary. As for getting them wet, I dunno, the pair I have in black feels very heavily oiled, I definitely wouldn't try to wear them through water or anything like boatshoes, the moccasin uppers aren't treated for it.
